A loan of $1,700 helped to build a latrine and dig a well for water.


Non's story

From Prey Chhor district, Kompong Cham province, Non is 24 years old and she is able to earn a daily income by planting seasonal crops. She has been in the farming business for over ten years.

Non has a life partner, Lav, who is in the same business. Together, they can generate a net profit of approximately of USD 8 per day for supporting the whole family. After being married for many years, they have given birth to a young child who still depends on their slight income.

Currently, their living condition is a bit of a sanitation concern since they still do not have a personal latrine for their family’s use, but they don’t have enough money to make it possible to get one.

That is the reason why Non would like to ask for loan from Kiva, through Hattha Kaksekar Limited (HKL), for the purpose of building a new latrine. Also, with the remaining funds, Non will dig a well in front of her house to get enough water for their consumption, especially in the dry season, which will last for six months of the year, starting in November and continuing until April. These Kiva funds can make her life better and more comfortable.
